Hi, netters,

recently i've been trying to install the perl package of DBD::mysql, 'cause 
I need this to use ensembl bioperl API.  
according to the installation file of DBD::mysql, I have to install mysql 
first. so i download the binary mysql file and unpack it into /home/mysql.

when i tried to do make file for DBD::mysql, it alwayse said: can't find 
file mysql_config.  actually i found the file mysql_config under the 
directory /home/mysql/bin, so i added the full path to the PATH enviroment. 
yet the setup file of DBD::mysql still kept reporting that it can't find 

does anyone have a clue about this?
